HMM Courage - more initials

 When the Hyundai Courage was last here on the westbound leg of the EC5 service of THE Alliance I posted ship's info and the details of HMM (formerly Hyundai Merchant Marine.) See: Shipfax March 7, 2023

At the time I was not able to get a decent photo, but today (March 21) when the ship returned on the eastbound leg conditions were ideal.

As the Hyundai Courage made its way inbound it passed the outbound CCGS Captain Jacques Cartier.

 Due to its size the ship used the tethered stern escort Atlantic Fir.

It was met by the Atlantic Oak in the lower harbour for the transit through the Narrows. Once the ship reached Bedford Basin it held off PSA Fairview Cove while the NYK Constellation got underway. That ship is on the westbound leg of THE Alliance's AL5 service from Antwerp and bound for Port Everglades.

Built in 2007 by Hyundai HI, Ulsan, it comes in at 55,534 gt, 65,919 dwt with a capacity of 4922 TEU including 330 reefers.

Back to the initials again, NYK Line or Nippon Kabushiki Kaisha (Japan Mail Shipping Line) is part of the giant Mitsubishi conglomerate, with some 800 ships of all types in its fleet. However it spun off its container interests in 2017 with the founding of Ocean Network Express (ONE). NYK has a 38% interest in ONE with MOL (31%) and K-Line (31%). Some ships continue to appear in "heritage" colours and with parent group names., while others have adopted ONE colours and names.
